How He Became Chief of Scouts
Several "vets" of the civil war were
comparing notes as to the why and
wherefore of their advancement dur-
ing their term of active service. All
gave accounts creditable to themselves
till It was the last man's turn, when he
told the following story:
I enlisted la the ranks with the rest
of the boys I knew In 1801. I didn't
eeem to have been cut out for a sol-
dier. I was not easily disciplined. I
was always straggling, and drills were
to me Intolerable. The only time I
could be relied on to show up for duty
was when there was fighting, and then
It was not because 1 liked It, for I didn't,
but because I dreaded the sneers of my
comrades. Nobody ever thought for a
moment of my even being made a non
com, much less decorated with a shoul-
Well, one day when we wera cavort-
ing around In Virginia, marching In
one direction one day, another the next,
never still forty-eight consecutive hours,
not having had regular rations for some
time, I got hungry and took the first
opportunity to drop out and do a little
foraging. I passed a house beBide the
road with n door leading down Into a
cellar. I tried It and found It uu-
locked. So I opened It and went In.
There was nothing In tho place but a
girl, one of the southern girls of the
period, with an olive complexion and
hair cut square around her neck. She
was washing something.
"What d'y' want?" she asked.
"I'm looking for something to eat,"
I replied. "I saw the door opening on
to the road very convenient, bo 1
thought I'd Just step in and see what
I could find."
"That's JuBt the way that door has
looked to all the stragglers In the
army," she replied. "There's not beeu
less than 6,000 men come In here. At
first we had some provisions, but
they ware soon eaten up by soldiers,
•o we didn't put any more here. We
don't keep the door locked because It
would be kicked open. Are there any
Of your men near by?"
"Guess net," I said.
MW B, If there ain't I don't mind
afcowiaf yon where we keep our eat-
ables. Do you see that wallT That
shuts off a part of the cellar. Come
opatoln and I'll (how you bow to get
I went up to the floor above, and the
girl opened a trapdoor. I went down
and waa looking about for a snaek
when I heard the door shut and locked.
There was no getting out, so after
awhile I stretched myself on a table
and went to sleep. I waa awakened
by a tramping a bore. Tho cellar was
dark, so I knew It was night Hear-
ing the clank of a saber, 1 listened to
discover If Bome of our meu hadn't
come In. They were not Federals, but
Confederates of high rank. I could
hoar every word they said. It was a
council of war. When at last they set-
tled on a plan to coucentrate and at-
tack our forces, they weut over eucL
detail again and again to be sure thcr
should be uo mistake. While they
were doing It I was fixing It all in
my memory so that If I got out In
time I could warn our general.
In the morning Uie trap was opeued
and a couplo of Confederate Boldlers
took me in charge. The girl wasn't
there, but an old man and woman
seemed to know all about my havlug
been trapped. I doubt If either of them
knew that their living room and kitch-
en had been used for a conference. I'm
not sure they knew I was there wheu
the conference was held. The soldiers
took uie away, and on the road we met
tho girl who had trapped me. I asked
to speak to her and told her I had a
watch In one of my pockets and would
give It to her if she woukl get me off.
Her eyes sparkled, and she agreed to
try. She sent one of my guards to a
house where she said they had a stock
of hams and while he wus gone man-
aged to get the other one's musket,
which she playfully fired nt n tree. 1
ran up and took It from her, she only
pretending to resist. The owner, see-
ing that I had the advantage of him,
rau away. Then I gave the girl my
watch, as I had promised, and took to
the woods till I ran across somo of our
While I was on my way to the gen-
eral with my Information I wondered
bow I would explain my being mado a
prisoner without giving away the fact
that I had been straggling. Then It
occurred to me that my story wasn't
very probable auyway. Why dldnt the
old folks tell the generals that a Yan-
kee soldier was Imprisoned In the cel-
lar? Why didn't the girl ask the sol-
diers to take my watch instead of get-
ting me away from them In order to
get It! I can't to this day explain the
first, and the only explanation I can
give of tho aocond Is that tho girl didn't
want any other claimant for It.
I made up a cock and boll story
about hatlag gone to sleep from ex-
haustion on tho march and on waking
ap had found a chance to do some
scouting. I called for a map and show
od , Just where certain Ooafederatii
forces wars located and how they
could be concentrated. The Informs
ti on was acted on, and when the at-
tach came our men wers rwady for It.
The result of all this was that I was
given a commission and a place on the
I taft of tho general commanding, with
charge of the scouts. Dnrtng tho res*
f my army service I told lota of men
Jkow to scout, and after my remarkable
feat in that line they all be tiered 1
